How is a Sonicare Toothbrush Different to Any Other?

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

iStock_000006052729XSmallWhen it comes to toothbrushes, it can be impossible to narrow down the hundreds of choices in pursuit of the perfect brush. If you’re looking for inspiration or want to replace your current brush, we recommend the Philips Sonicare Range.

What’s so good about Sonicare?

The development of Sonicare brushes is based on many years of research. These brushes offer exceptional levels of cleaning power. The range is proven to remove plaque and provide your teeth with a deep clean and polish that leaves them feeling smooth and looking sparkly.

Sonicare offers a range of products catering for all budgets. All the brushes offer a host of impressive features as standard. If you’re after a brush that does everything, you can pay a little more for all the mod cons such as smart technology, varied brushing modes and a timer.

Brushing tips

The beauty of Sonicare brushes is that they do all the work for you. All you need to do is hold the brush handle and gently guide the head around your teeth. Take care to angle the brush head to cover the gum line and individual surface of each tooth. There’s no need to put any extra effort into brushing as the brush oscillates quickly, producing a thorough clean.

We recommend brushing for at least two minutes in the morning and again in the evening. Some brushes come with an in-built timer, but you could set an alarm on your watch or phone to make sure you brush for long enough. We also recommend using fluoride toothpaste.

For advice about buying a Sonicare toothbrush, don’t hesitate to give us a call or pop in if you’re in Leeds.

Sensational Simplicity with a Sonicare Toothbrush

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

iStock_000006052729XSmallTeeth cleaning shouldn’t be a grind and with Sonicare, you can enjoy an amazingly deep clean with complete simplicity and no stress at all. At City Dental Leeds, we are proud to endorse the Sonicare range and we encourage our patients to try this incredible brand of brushes.

Why Sonicare?

Sonicare is a well-known brand that produces high quality products based on extensive research and the findings of clinical trials. There is a wide range of Sonicare brushes available to suit all budgets and all the brushes are easy-to-use and highly effective.

We recommend Sonicare because of the results the brushes achieve, the innovative design features and the range of products available.

Do I really need an electric toothbrush?

It is possible to achieve a good clean with a manual toothbrush, however clinical trials consistently show that using an electric toothbrush achieves a more thorough result. Trials show that electric brushes remove more plaque than manual brushes and many people find electric brushes easier to use. With an electric brush, the technology does all the hard work for you and you’re guaranteed a great clean every time.

Brushing tips

There is an assumption that brushing as firmly as possible will remove more plaque, but this is not the case and we actually advise our patients to adopt a gentle approach when brushing. Brushing vigorously can damage the tooth enamel. If you have an electric toothbrush, you don’t have to put in additional effort. Simply guide the brush around your mouth and let the brush do all the work for you! We strongly recommend brushing for two minutes in the mornings and evenings. You can buy brushes that have a built-in timer, or you could set a timer on your watch or phone to make sure you hit this target.

If you would like advice about buying toothbrushes or would like to find out more about Sonicare, we will be happy to help. Simply give us a call or pop in and see us if you are in London.

Spellbinding Sonicare Will Blast Away That City Leeds Plaque

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

464425_blogPlaque is a major problem for dentists and we strongly recommend the Sonicare brushes to keep dental disease at bay and blast bacteria. With good oral hygiene, you can significantly reduce your risk of running into dental troubles and Sonicare makes brushing easier than ever before.

Why Sonicare?

Sonicare brushes have been developed using the latest design concepts and technological breakthroughs and they offer functionality and innovation, as well as proven results. Electric toothbrushes are proven to remove plaque more effectively than manual brushes and the Sonicare range has attracted plaudits from all over the world. There are brushes to suit all budgets and you don’t need to pay the earth to reap the rewards.

Brushing tips

When using an electric toothbrush, you don’t need to put in any additional effort and you should avoid pushing the brush, as brushing too firmly can actually damage the enamel. Simply guide the brush head around your teeth, taking care to cover every surface of every tooth and angling the head to brush along the gum line. We recommend brushing for 2-3 minutes and you can buy brushes with a built-in timer; if you don’t have a timer, try brushing along to a song instead.


In addition to brushing twice a day, we recommend flossing. Flossing is important because it covers the corners, the gum line and the gaps between the teeth, which are tricky to reach with a toothbrush. Flossing can help to reduce the risk of gum disease and decay by decreasing the risk of plaque development.

If you have any questions about choosing a toothbrush or you’re unsure which toothpaste to buy, we are always happy to help; don’t hesitate to give us a call or have a chat when you next have an appointment.

Sonicare Simplicity Can Swiftly Swipe Those Stains Away

Monday, August 11th, 2014

464425_blogWhen it comes to oral health issues, simply spending two minutes every morning and evening can swiftly put a stop to dental woes and ensure your smile looks healthy and bright. With Sonicare, maintaining good oral hygiene at home has never been easier!

What are the benefits of Sonicare?

The Sonicare range of brushes is extremely effective and studies show that these toothbrushes remove plaque much more effectively than manual brushes. Sonicare is tried and tested, with many years of research and trials involved in the development of the products and the brushes are easy to handle and hold and simple to use. There are features and gadgets aplenty for those who love to move with the times in terms of technology, but there are also very straightforward models for patients who simply want a toothbrush that is going to clean the mouth thoroughly, remove bacteria and prevent plaque formation.

Brushing tips

With Sonicare electric toothbrushes, brushing has never been simpler. All you have to do is guide the brush around your mouth and let the brush head do all the work. The brush head oscillates very quickly and there is no need for you to put in any additional effort, as brushing too hard can actually damage the enamel. Hold the brush against your teeth and move it slowly to cover all surfaces of each tooth; angle the head to ensure you cover the gum line.

When you are brushing, try to reach into the corners and spend some time cleaning your tongue, as the back of the tongue is a breeding ground for bacteria and this is a very common cause of bad breath. We recommend using fluoride toothpaste and we advise brushing for at least 2 minutes twice a day; many of the Sonicare brushes have in-built timers, so there’s no excuses for stopping short!

If you’re looking for recommendations for toothbrushes or any other oral hygiene products or you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask!

Don’t Forget Your Sonicare Toothbrush

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

4196468_blogA toothbrush is your best weapon against nasty oral illnesses, such as gum disease and decay and it can also help to keep your teeth looking shiny and bright. We recommend Sonicare brushes because they are versatile, functional and proven to remove plaque effectively.

What is so special about Sonicare toothbrushes?

Sonicare brushes offer a range of options and styles to cater for the varying needs of dental patients and they boast innovative features, as well as an excellent reputation for effective cleaning. Studies show that these brushes are clinically proven to reduce the presence of harmful bacteria in the mouth and decrease the risk of plaque formation. Sonicare brushes are also easy to use and control, they offer innovative features, such as smart technology and brushing settings, and they are suitable for patients of all ages.

Brushing tips

Brushing should be an essential part of any daily routine and we cannot stress the importance of brushing twice a day enough. Brushing is your best bet against food debris and harmful bacteria and an extremely powerful means of preventing the development of plaque. Plaque is a sticky colourless substance, which forms when bacteria combine with saliva and food particles; the bacteria in plaque attack and erode the enamel and irritate the gums, causing inflammation and pain.

We recommend brushing for at least 2-3 minutes each time you brush and using fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride helps to strengthen the outer enamel layer of the teeth. When you brush, try to resist the temptation to scrub, as brushing aggressively does more harm than good because it damages the tooth enamel. It’s best to choose a brush with a small, mobile head, such as the Sonicare brushes, as these are easier to manoeuvre around the mouth. When you are brushing, try to ensure you clean each tooth and angle the head of the brush so that you can clean all the surfaces.

Why Do City Leeds Recommend A Sonicare Toothbrush?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

4390244_blogBrushing is the most effective way of protecting your mouth against gum disease and decay and we highly recommend the Sonicare range of toothbrushes. We know that it can be difficult to choose a brush when faced with aisles full of different brands and products and Sonicare as an excellent reputation.

Why Sonicare?

The Sonicare range of toothbrushes offers something for everyone, from more basic models, which remove plaque and polish the teeth, to smart brushes, which enables you to keep tabs on your brushing habits and identify areas, which could be improved. Sonicare has a proven track record for plaque removal and we also recommend these brushes for ease of use, versatility and design.

Brushing tips

We cannot stress the importance of brushing enough! Brushing is the best way to prevent plaque formation and keep your teeth sparkling. We recommend spending at least 2 minutes brushing your teeth every morning and evening using fluoride toothpaste. We recommend Sonicare brushes, but you should be able to achieve a thorough clean with any toothbrush. When you brush, take care to target all areas of the mouth and try your best to reach right into the corners and brush along the gum line. It is advisable to floss in addition to brushing to remove food debris and bacteria from the gum line and the small cracks between the teeth; you can also use inter-dental brushes to clean between your teeth.


If you have any questions about brushing, flossing or choosing the best oral hygiene products, do not hesitate to call us or bob in next time you are in town. Our dentists and dental hygienists will be happy to help!

Sonicare Simplicity For A Healthier Mouth

Friday, May 16th, 2014

2603730_blogBrushing is the best way to cleanse your mouth and remove potentially harmful bacteria and leftover scraps of food from your mouth. We recommend Sonicare for effective and simple brushing.

Why is brushing so important?

Brushing is important because it is the best way of getting rid of unwanted bacteria and food debris from your mouth, which helps to reduce the risk of decay and gum disease. If you don’t brush your teeth, left over food and bacteria combine with saliva and this results in the development of plaque. Plaque is a sticky substance, which lies along the gum line and clings to the surfaces of the teeth; it is the main cause of cavities and enamel wear and gum disease.

Brushing is also a really effective way of keeping your teeth looking shiny, bright and white. When you brush, this polishes your teeth and ensures they feel smooth and look healthy.

We recommend brushing twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed, using fluoride toothpaste.

Why Sonicare?

Sonicare is proven to work. The Sonicare range contains a host of different options to cater for all budgets and research suggests that the brushes remove plaque very effectively. The brushes are designed with style and simplicity in mind; they are easy to handle and manoeuvre in the mouth and they produce excellent results. There are different products available, many of which have additional features and gadgets to enhance and improve cleaning power and make it easier for you to maintain good oral hygiene at home.

We are happy to discuss toothbrushes and other oral hygiene products with you and make recommendations based on your oral health status and your needs. Simply talk to one of our dentists or dental hygienists and they will be happy to help!

Sonicare Simplicity Can Help You Protect Your Yorkshire Gnashers

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

361951_blogEffective tooth brushing is the key to good oral health and we recommend Sonicare, a brand, which is proven to produce amazing standards of cleaning.

Electric toothbrushes are proven to remove more plaque than manual brushes and they are also easier to operate; they also often have additional features, such as built-in timers, which help to ensure that you brush for the recommended time twice a day. Sonicare brushes have small heads, which oscillate very quickly to cover all surfaces of the teeth and remove bacteria and bits of food from the mouth.

Brushing tips

We recommend brushing twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. Ideally, you should wait around one hour after eating to clean your teeth to prevent damage to the enamel, as the enamel becomes weakened temporarily when you eat. Using fluoride toothpaste will help to strengthen your enamel. Using a Sonicare brush makes it easier to cover all surfaces of the teeth for a thorough clean. We also recommend flossing, as this helps to remove bacteria and bits of food, which have become trapped between the teeth.
